From the Publisher:

Through a spectacular, film-like sequence of beautiful and compelling photographs and iconographic imagery, this unique volume explores the rituals and symbols of one of the world's greatest religions.

Review:

Thurman, one of the foremost Buddhist scholars in this country, presents some powerful visual illustration of the rituals which illustrate Tibetan Buddhism's philosophy. Combining images of sacred spaces with rich black and white and color shots, this visual feast accompanies strong descriptions of Buddhist thought. -- Midwest Book Review
